Eyebrows the Internet


Due to the lack of places offering threading in Leeds I ventured to the original lash & nail bar in Leeds corn exchange. I have to say I did originally ask for my brows to be threaded but the girl who does threading wasn't in that day so the lady I was speaking to said she could wax and tint them...I was dubious, I really wanted to move away from waxing but then she said if I didn't like them she wouldn't charge me as she was that confident I would love the results! SOLD!


So I sat down in the beautician chair and she tinted away - at this point I would normally tell the person that I didn't want to go too dark as it freaks me out a little but she had already said that she wouldn't take them all the way black. She already had my trust so I let her work her magic!

While we were waiting for the tint to take we were talking about threading and waxing and I told her about the debarcle with my last threading experience at Glow. She was gobsmacked and told me that she did go on a threading course but just didn't feel confident in doing it and that's why she didn't offer it. She's been waxing for over 10 years and knows she's good at it - so why change? Very good point indeed.

With all tinting and waxing done she filled in part of my brows (part of my right brow just seems to not have any hair) with a MAC pencil. She also showed me how to do it at home too as I've never been very confident in pencilling in brows! I also stopped by the MAC counter en route home to pick up a new eyebrow pencil too *oops*

I'm super happy with the shape and the result, she really did know what she was doing and put my mind at ease. Would definitely go back and recommend it all Leeds ladies to pay a visit!




So here's the result. P.S I'm in a pumpkin at Alton Towers :)

Winter Skin Survival For Dry and Dehydrated Skin

Every now and again I branch out from my tried and tested favourites in search of something new for my skin.  I don’t mind admitting that I’ve been doing this for a lot of years now, I’ve mostly found what works for my skin and I’ve settled on a routine that works for my budget and my schedule - cheap and quick if you’re wondering. But that doesn’t mean that I will end the search for new products. I’m just very careful how I do it. I live by samples and testers, I opt for the occasional beauty box or calendar, and I love love love finding miniatures and gift sets on offer after the holidays - I tend to stock up on products around this time and drag them out through the next year.



Which leads to my recent purchase of the Marks & Spencer beauty advent calendar. It’s my 4th year in a row buying this calendar and I very much doubt I’ll miss it next year. Some of my absolute favourite products have come out of these calendars, the Formula Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream being one and my …

Belfast Fashion Week House Of Fraser Press Preview

Michelle & I were very excited to get an invite to the Belfast House Of Fraser Spring/Summer Press Preview recently. Now unfortunately it was a bit far for Michelle to commute (this time!) but I, luckily, had the day off work and went to have a nosy along with a few other FABB bloggers!

Battle of the pale bronzers: Benefit Hoola Lite vs Wet 'n Wild Reserve Your Cabana

Have I ever mentioned to you that I am pale?  Well of course I havementioned many times over the history of Faeriwood that I've been pigmentally challenged my whole life and - despite flirting with tanning every now and again -  I wholly embrace the pale. I have, however, always been a bronzing queen when it comes to my makeup. Whether I am using cream products or powders I always have felt healthier with a bit of a glow but I hate the orangey-ness of most bronzing products! It’s a catch-22 when deciding which one is more important.  For years I have been loyal to two products. Nars Multiple for a cream face (read here why I don’t believe in the term contouring for chubby cheeks) and Benefit Hoola for a powder face. Both are quite dark so they are used often but sparingly. This is why I was delighted when two new products designed for pale skin came on to the market.
